Another Study Shows that BioCurcumin Improves Depression in Adults

Turmeric is the herb that gives curry its major culinary characteristics. The turmeric root supplies many constituents related to ongoing good health; curcuminoids and essential oils often referred to generically as curcumin; unfortunately these constituents are difficult to absorb. 

BioCurcumin is an extremely well absorbed form of Turmeric supplement supplying all of the essential oils and curcuminoids and these active constituents make up 95% of the supplement (in research the name is abbreviated into BC 95 – the 95 refers to the concentration of constituents).

A number of studies show that BioCurcumin helps adults with major depressive disorder and also atypical depression. It works on its own and if used in conjunction with the commonly prescribed antidepressant drug fluoxetine(Paxil generic) it improves the number of people who achieved substantial improvements of their mood.

In this new study 123 patients with major depressive disorder were treated with BioCurcumin, or placebo, or BioCurcumin with saffron; saffron supplies powerful antioxidants. Biocurcumin significantly improved symptoms of depression and anxiety compared to placebo at doses of 250mg or 500mg a day with food. Adding saffron gave no additional benefit. The study is published in the Journal of Affective Disorders.
